Red Bank Tries 'Out Of The Box' Thinking On Intersection

June 6, 2019

There is an eye-catching paint job at the bustling intersection of S. Bridge Avenue and Drs. James Parker Boulevard, located amid a convenience store, Detour Framing, Lunch Break and the Red Bank branch of the Boys & Girls Club of Monmouth County.

The rectangular space defined by the system of crosswalks at the intersection has been colored mint green with a large golden sun painted in the center.

The artwork is part of the borough’s ongoing “tactical urbanism” project, a creative means to help “ease traffic and make that area work better,” said council-woman Kate Triggiano.

Graduate students from the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers will collect data from the sites, report the findings and make recommendations about expansion to other borough sites, as well as permanent infrastructure improvements.
